Malabrigo Chunky is an incredibly soft and squishy bulky weight yarn in a range of semi-solid and hand dyed colorways. This 3-ply yarn is spun from luxurious merino wool and is very comfortable to wear next to the skin.
Be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project. As with all hand dyed yarns, dye lots are very small and not as consistent as machine dyed yarns.
With all multi-colored hand dyed yarns, such as Malabrigo Chunky, each skein is unique. Therefore, we recommend that you work from two balls of yarn at once to ensure random color distribution, alternating every row or two from each ball. This short video will show you how to alternate your yarns.
